Just as with elementary level Social Studies, middle level Social Studies takes well-rounded knowledge of every discipline to teach well. However, middle school Social Studies teachers also have to take their students’ unique needs in mind. At this age, middle school students endure a multitude of social, physical, and emotional changes—all of which can be hard and confusing to grapple with.
It is the additional job of a middle school teacher, no matter their subject, to help guide their students through this new transition. This task comes on top of teaching regular Social Studies curriculum, which must be done in a way that retains your students’ attention while also fostering strong learning.
To ensure you’re able to meet your students’ needs as thoroughly as possible, the state of Oklahoma requires that all incoming middle school Social Studies teachers take and pass the OSAT Middle Level Social Studies test. This exam will assess how much you know as far as classroom management and your respective field. As such, this is the final goalpost to starting your professional career.
